“I went out on Van Vliet today, but no musky. There are probably those who are wondering just what I accomplish in the course of a day. Here’s a guy who spends most of the day fishing for muskies and doesn’t catch any. Well, looking back at my working years with the Associated Press, I wonder how many days I really accomplished anything there. I remember answering the phone a lot. One day I kept a log and tallied 99 calls I answered. There was one woman who called several times a day, and it seems I always picked up the phone on her calls. In the seven years I worked at the AP she never once asked for me. I’ve probably spent the equivalent of one day of my life telling other people that this particular woman wanted to talk to them.
On behalf of the Boyes Group, I would like to pass on our sincere thanks for hosting the Muskie Madness Week and we thoroughly enjoyed our stay at VBL and had a great time!! This was our 7th year on Eagle Lake and we have stayed at a few other lodges but VBL takes the cake hands down! You can definitely count us in for next year. I’m happy to see you post some of my pics, they turned out well. Thanks again Gord for a wonderful week of fishing and your stellar hospitality, you run a first class operation, we look forward to seeing you next year!
